@stewarts_food_mart: I’m confused…it sounds like she willfully left him, not that she was denied access. Basically, she could have reached out to him if she wanted to but chose not to. Am I wrong? Just trying to understand if this is actually something to be celebrated because it seems like she left her child to start her life over to me
@dannyokoye: You get us involved and we need to know more? Where is she? why did she abandon you? Etc
@adorables_fashion: Wonderful. Power of social media
